Chloe- Founder and Director

"As an engineer, I love to problem solve and find solutions. The problems of menstrual taboo and lack of menstrual hygiene can really hold women back, be detrimental to their health and their confidence. 

I never set out to become an “expert on periods”, but the more I find out the more I realise we have to break down the taboo to solve other problems such as access to adequate sanitation, girls gaining access to equal education, women being able to work the same jobs as men and the amount of waste we create through our disposable culture."
Alex - Marketing and Student Engagement Officer

Alex - Director and CMO

 "I’m a third year Politics and International Relations student at University of Bristol. My interests include environmental politics, gender and justice and comparative politics. I'm a liberal feminist and a strong supporter of egalitarianism.

I've always wanted to work for an NGO and make a positive impact on both disadvantaged communities and the planet so No More Taboo is a perfect place for that."
Alex - Marketing and Student Engagement Officer

Shai - Director and UK Programmes Coordinator

 "I'm a recent Geography graduate from the University of Bristol, passionate about working to reduce gender inequalities, especially amongst socio-economically disadvantaged groups. No More Taboo's work to improve menstrual health services for homeless women in Bristol is crucial to helping to alleviate these inequalities. When I'm not wildly chattering on about feminism and periods (rarely), you can probably find me soaking up a book or saving my pennies to go travelling."
Sophie - Events and Crowdfunding Officer

Sophie - UK Communications Officer

"Studying sociology, I'm used to reading about the theory of inequality, and getting to help to defeat it on a practical level has always been my goal.

I am passionate about gender equality, and No More Taboo is starting from the ground up to build a better world. Menstruation is so universal and yet it continues to be an area of hardship and oppression. 

For me, there's nothing inherently bad or unpleasant about periods, it's all about changing attitudes and access. I joined No More Taboo to be part of that change!"
Shai - UK Programme Coordinator

Zoe - Event Coordinator

"A final year ‘Politics and International Development’ student at University of the West of England (UWE) located in Bristol, a former Global Political Economy student representative and a keen contributor to anything political. 

Building the empowering organisation No More Taboo is self fulfilling and morally demanded when women are still held back by their natural cycle. Growing up in England I have been luckier than most, through organisations like these we can give back to those less fortunate and increase our national (and global) social development; something I prioritise highly throughout my studies."
Shai - UK Programme Coordinator

Natasha - Photography and Creative Media Officer

"I am a third year medical student at the University of Bristol with a passion for Art and Photography. Working for No More Taboo comes as a welcome challenge: to portray an incredibly important message visually and thereby hopefully make a difference. 

I also have a special interest in Global Health and Preventative medicine; and believe NMT is effective altruism at work - inadequate menstrual hygiene in several less privileged areas greatly increases the risk of gynaecological infection which is almost completely preventable. No More Taboo has the potential to improve so many lives with simple interventions and I am very excited to see what the future holds!"
Shai - UK Programme Coordinator

Adrianna - Branding and Graphic Design Officer

"A Second year Graphic Design student at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. Fascinated with digital design, filmmaking, photography, dystopian books, sci-fi movies and yoga. When I was growing up in Poland, I’ve noticed the taboo surrounding women's health and menstrual cycle. No More Taboo is an inspiring organisation which helps women around the world and I’m really happy to be a part of it!"
Shai - UK Programme Coordinator

Carolyn - Specialist Adviser

“I have worked in the third sector for a number of years - as Company Secretary for an interfaith broadcast project - Radio Salaam Shalom, as co founder of a small aid initiative- Blanketaid and as a co ordinator at Bristol Refugee Rights.

My original training was in Dance Therapy then in Theatre ( BA Hons Dartington) with a strong emphasis on Arts Management. I have worked in the corporate and third sectors as a role player, workshop facilitator and coach.

I have long had a personal interest in feminist spirituality and the wisdom of feminine cycles and in 2013 I ran 5 k to raise money for Ecofemme who run positive menstruation initiatives in India.
Having been at home with my son for the past 5 years I'm about to start an MA in mindfulness based psychotherapy.”
Alex - Marketing and Student Engagement Officer

Elise Fjordbakk - Videographer

 "I am a final year Politics and International Relations student at the University of Bath with a passionate interest in feminist and environmental issues. I learned about No More Taboo whilst working in Bolivia, and instantly knew I had to get involved. Having created videos for several organisations in Peru and Bolivia, I believe creativity is essential to break the taboos around periods."
Alex - Marketing and Student Engagement Officer

Lauren Smith-Birch - Educational Outreach Coordinator

 "Absolutely passionate about breaking down the barriers that young people today face in realising their potential. After spending two years teaching in an academy where a high percentage of students came from low socio-economic backgrounds, I experienced first-hand the impact that periods could have on the lives of some of our most vulnerable young people. The decision to join NMT was motivated by both of these factors: it’s time to stop one of the body’s most natural processes from acting as a barrier to the next."

University of Bristol - Feminist Society

"The Bristol University Feminist Society are delighted to be working with No More Taboo on encouraging students to buy eco-friendly sanitary products that contribute to breaking down gender divides around the world. No one should be held back by menstruation, and we hope that one day it is truly considered an ordinary fact of life rather than an embarrassing problem"
